Fish oils… good or bad?


Fish oils are a great supplement to add to your daily diet. It’s full of omega-3 fatty acids, which do so many good things for the body.

Here at rb5 Nottingham, our personal trainers highly recommend fish oils as they help the body in many ways. The omega-3 fatty acids help the body in many ways, such as supporting cardiovascular function, nervous system function, brain development and all round immune health, as well as many other functions.

The omega-3s that most people are aware of are

  • Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
  • Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and
  • Alpha-linoliec acid (ALA)



EPA and DHA can be found within marine animals (fish), whereas ALA can be found with plant-based sources e.g. flax, walnuts, chia and hemp. ALA has to be converted into EPA/DHA before it can do its critical health promoting roles. Combining your training with a high omega-3 diet can provide a greater overall fat loss. The sensitising ability of the DHA, and the ant-inflammatory benefits of the EPA combined with the fat burning benefits of both making choosing a supplement a high in both a great addition to achieving your goals.
